Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- So far, so good for the Philadelphia 76ers on their brutal road trip.

Faced with playing five playoff teams in seven days, the 76ers extended their winning streak to six games with a 111-101 rout of the Indiana Pacers, who owned the NBA's best home record.

Toni Kukoc recorded his second career triple-double for the Sixers, who dominated the Eastern Conference's best team from the start and kept at least a one-game lead over Toronto for the fourth seed in the East.

"Everybody's starting to play together," Sixers forward Tyrone Hill said. "I think everybody's a little more focused. We're trying to take one game at a time and get home-court advantage."

Philadelphia also snapped a 12-game losing streak in Indiana, including two playoff games, and dropped the Pacers' home mark to 31-5.

"It's a good way to start a road trip," Hill said. "We knew they'd been struggling a little bit. The most important thing was we wanted to get out in front of them real quick and we did that."

Indiana, which had a 25-game home winning streak snapped two weeks ago against Miami, was blown out of Conseco Fieldhouse for the second time in as many games. Milwaukee walked away with a 105-84 victory on Thursday.

"We looked tired, we looked old, we didn't look like we (had) any life," Pacers coach Larry Bird said. "It's been that way the last two games. They're just not playing. The way we are playing, we are lucky to be in the playoffs."

Philadelphia and Milwaukee each scored 62 first-half points, the most by an opponent at Conseco Fieldhouse, which opened this season.

"We must find a way to get on track," Pacers guard Mark Jackson said. "This was a very disappointing homestand. We got embarrassed two straight nights. I really mean embarrassed and we can't tolerate this."

The Sixers built a 13-point lead after one quarter and added to it behind Allen Iverson, who scored 22 of his 33 points in the second half.

Philadelphia shot 50 percent, held a 51-40 rebounding advantage and committed a season-low seven turnovers. It led by at least nine points and by as many as 26 over the final 36 minutes.

"It's always great when you beat a good team that is well coached," said Sixers coach Larry Brown, who won in Indiana for the first time since leaving the Pacers after the 1996-97 season. "The best feeling is walking into the locker room and knowing that everyone made a contribution."

Kukoc totaled 19 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists. Hill added 19 points and eight boards and Matt Geiger had 12 and 10 for the Sixers, who play Tuesday at Minnesota.

Philadelphia plays eight of its final 13 games on the road, with meetings against Utah and the Los Angeles Lakers highlighting this trip. The Lakers also entered the day at 31-4 at home.

Kukoc recorded the first triple-double by an opponent at Conseco and his first since March 30, 1995 as a member of the Chicago Bulls. He totaled 14 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in a 100-82 win over the Boston Celtics.

"I just did my job, at least I think I did," said Kukoc, who was acquired from Chicago on February 16. "We did a great job of moving the ball around the perimeter, whic got everyone a lot of good looks at the basket."

The Pacers looked strong early, scoring the first seven points. Philadelphia closed the first quarter on a 36-16 run to grab a 36-23 cushion.

The Sixers took over with a series of drives and offensive rebounds, behind Kukoc, Ratliff and Geiger, who scored six points during a 14-2 run that gave Philadelphia a 30-17 lead.

Philadelphia, which benefited from the absence of Indiana All-Star forward Dale Davis, held a 20-6 advantage off the boards in the first quarter, grabbing eight off the offensive glass.

Geiger had six points and eight rebounds in just five minutes offf the bench.

"They really missed having Dale out there," Brown said. "We dominated the boards, which would not have happened if Dale had been in. We had a pretty big lineup and we rebounded as a team."

Looking like the best team in the East, the Sixers led by at least 12 points throughout the second quarter and built a 51-31 bulge on a layup by backup center Todd McCulloch with 7:11 to play.

The Pacers were outscored 28-7 in transition and trailed 62-45 at halftime. They never got within 15 points in the first 20 1/2 minutes of the second half.

Indiana closed within 70-54 on a follow dunk by Austin Croshere with 6:50 left in the third, but the Sixers used a 15-5 run over the next 3:29 to build their biggest lead, 85-59.

Jalen Rose scored 19 points and Travis Best added 17 off the bench for Indiana, which outscored the Sixers, 37-22, in the final quarter before dropping to 31-5 at home.

Croshere scored 16 points and Rik Smits and Reggie Miller had 12 apiece for the Pacers, who shot 43 percent (36-of-83) from the field.

Ratliff finished with 14 points and Snow had nine assists for the Sixers, who went 47-of-94 from the floor. Iverson hit 14-of-25 shots and grabbed eight rebounds.

"We turned the tables on them today," said Iverson, whose team suffered a 109-84 loss here on February 7. "The last time we played each other, they jumped on us early. Today, we started hot and they couldn't recover."
